The Best of London Fashion Week 2022

Known to bring plenty of bold statement looks, London Fashion Week kicked off on Friday, February 18 to deliver a digital-physical hybrid fashion week presented by Clearpay. Featuring top emerging British designers, London Fashion Week 2022 exceeded expectations in terms of experimental design and post-pandemic party garb. From the sculptural ‘demi-couture’ looks of Harris Reed to Nensi Dojaka’s lingerie-like pieces, this year’s runway shows reaffirmed the level of talent and creativity London’s fashion scene has to offer.

Simone Rocha

Sumptuous textural layering, bejewelled balaclavas and voluminous sleeves and skirts featured throughout Irish designer, Simone Rocha’s, autumn/winter collection at London Fashion Week over the weekend. Drawing inspiration from the Irish legend, Children of Lir, a handful of the pieces bore delicate swan motifs in the form of intricate embroidery while glittering jewel accents and ball gown inspired silhouettes nodded to the royal aspect of the old tale.

Richard Quinn

Known for his affinity for latex and maximalist prints, Richard Quinn’s latest collection was ‘quinntessentially’ Quinn while still pushing the boundaries of the British designer’s signature ‘dark couture’ look. With statement silhouettes, bold colours and plenty of texture, his London Fashion Week 2022 show brought royal garb on steroids in the form of exaggerated coats and enormous hats.

Molly Goddard

Inspired by the eccentric 80s style of her mum’s best friend, Molly Goddard’s autumn/winter collection brought all the ruffles, cosy cardigans and party dresses you could ever need to inject some life and colour into a dreary English winter.

Nensi Dojaka

While most winter collections were characterised by swathes of material, balaclavas and layering, Albanian designer and LVMH prize winner Nensi Dojaka proved she could make the colder months sexy. Continuing her lingerie-inspired cutouts, use of sheer fabrics and spaghetti straps, Dojaka’s latest collection was undoubtedly sensual, offering shoppers neutral-toned club attire and party outfits as we phase into ‘post-pandemic’ life.

Harris Reed

Exploring the flamboyance and flair of queer culture, 26-year-old designer, Harris Reed’s 60 Years a Queen collection was true to the Reed brand identity: “romanticism gone non-binary”. While the collection totalled just 10 looks, Reed’s latest creations packed a demi-couture punch, bringing extravagant headpieces, exaggerated silhouettes and Elizabethan-esque looks.
